October's Red Flag Winner is... Charity Navigator! This group is dedicated to helping people choose legitimate organizations to make donations to in order to avoid charity scams.
With many natural disasters hitting the U.S. recently, people have been looking for ways to help victims. During this time of giving, Charity Navigator has played an essential role in protecting people from scams. The group provides information about where donor money goes and what it is used for. Potential donors can utilize their search tools, charity rating system, as well as easily accessible information designed to protect users from funding fake programs or organizations.
Charity Navigator is one of the first places donors should check to make sure they are giving money to reputable organizations.
